Review of A Ghost of a Chance

A Ghost Of A Chance

Ghost Detective, Book #4

Jane Hinchey

5 Stars


Running a private investigation business in the seaside town of Firefly Bay should be a pretty easy job. One where I call the shots—figuratively speaking because to put clumsy little ole me in charge of a firearm is just asking for trouble. After a hectic few months all I’m after is an easy day, where my cases add up to nothing more strenuous than deciding if tonight’s takeout is pizza or tacos (or both).

Should have known my day was going to go to hell in a handbasket when someone switched out my coffee order for decaf (seriously, who does that?) and my main squeeze, Captain Cowboy Hot Pants, aka Detective Kade Galloway’s ex-girlfriend and internal affairs investigator, Savannah Mcintosh, turns up to work a case.

Before I can say café latte, Galloway’s dodging my calls, I’ve got a raccoon on my hands who’s decided mi casa es su casa, my ghostly best friend has a crush to die for, and local teenager Kira Melendez has turned up missing.

So much for an easy day. I have a sneaking suspicion my life is about to become a whole new level of crazy.

Join Audrey Fitzgerald in the Ghost Detective series, a paranormal cozy mystery featuring a cat, a ghost, and a murder to solve.  (Goodreads)


The characters are well rounded and well developed. Audrey is a PI and her latest case involves a missing teen, and Audrey is determined to find her.  She will have the help of Ben, her best friend who is a ghost.  Her boyfriend is a detective and he will also help her find the teen.  

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented and it grabbed my attention from the very beginning.  The mystery was well plotted and you will have to wear your detective shoes on to be able to figure out the mystery.  

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written ghost cozy.  I really enjoy this series and I think you will too.
